According to GPS, at approximately 9:45 AM NPT on 5/23, John reached the summit of Lhotse. He has now begun his descent back to C2, then EBC.
John reached the Summit of Mount Everest!
According to GPS John and his team are on the move, hopefully bound for the summit in about 7-8 hours.

The audio quality is a bit poor, but John and the team are at Camp 2 and headed to Camp 3 on their way to the summit. They chose to wait an extra day due to weather but all is well!
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Steck family.
